Environmental assessment regime extended

Projects benefitting from permitted development rights will have to go through the normal planning process in England and Wales from 3 June if they are held to require environmental assessment (EA). The change has been forced on the UK by the 1985 EC Directive on environmental assessment, and may affect small numbers of industrial, agricultural and land reclamation projects which normally do not require planning consent.
